NEXT EXIT follows a research scientist (Karen Gillan) who makes national news proving she can track people into the afterlife - Rose (Katie Parker) sees a way out and Teddy (Rahul Kohli) sees his chance to finally make it. These two strangers, both harboring dark secrets, race to join the doctor's contentious study and leave this life behind. While Rose is haunted by a ghostly presence that she can't outrun, Teddy is forced to confront his past. As these two misfits humorously quarrel their way across the country, they meet people along the way who force them to reckon with what is really driving them.

“Mali Elfman has crafted a fascinating, and haunting story, that is filled with a deeply touching empathy for characters that wouldn’t have been given this kind of care in lesser hands.” Dan Tabor, Cinapse

“…leaves its little flecks of light in your soul once the credits roll.” Maggie Lovitt, Collider
